Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham released the following statement in response to President Trump’s executive order that would reverse key rules curbing U.S. carbon emissions.

“This is what happens when the White House and the EPA are run by climate-change deniers who disregard science. President Trump is not only endangering our environment and public health; he is ignoring his own Defense Department and putting our national security at risk.

“New Mexico is on the front lines as we transition to a clean-energy economy.  We should be aggressively investing in wind and solar energy jobs and innovations. But the Trump Administration wants to reverse the progress we’ve made, while putting Western states like New Mexico at a greater risk of drought, wildfires, and floods.”
